Yemen: Thousands Call for Saleh to Quit
May 13, 2011
Tens of thousands of Yemenis have taken to the streets today for what organizers have called the "Friday of Decisiveness." The marches are taking place days after Yemeni forces opened fire on demonstrators. The death toll from weeks of protests has surpassed 160. The violence comes as Qatar has pulled out of international talks on a deal that would see Saleh voluntarily resign. Democracy Now! interviews Iona Craig, a Times of London correspondent, based in the Yemeni capital, Sana'a.
